christmas. >> somebody opened fire on a number of businesses, including a starbucks. christien kafton has been talking to police and witnesses this morning. what have you got? >> reporter: good morning. still no word on the shooter or the victim in this case. we caught up with one woman who heard the shots. she says she heard at least 7 rounds. you can see where some of the rounds wound up. you can see a bullet hole in the wall to the starbucks. to the left of that, you can see the window blown out over at the hawaiian barbecue restaurant. now, police say that the shooting all started around 9:15 last night. most of the businesses were still open in the area. and customers were in and out of the mall at the time of the shooting. police arrived shortly after the shots were fired. witnesses gentle investigators that one man was hit. he was bleeding and he ran to the starbucks here and then took off in a car. now, investigators told me that they have been checking in at local emergency rooms and hospitals. so far that shooting victim has
not shown up. clearly if they can find who was shot, that would lead them to a lot more information about possibly who the shooter was, possibly what the motivation was. guys, the good news is that we heard there were no bystanders that were hit. as for video surveillance, that is one of the questions that i have been trying to figure out for myself. know that there are video cameras inside the starbucks. no word if they are aimed outside or if they were able to pick up the shootings or the suspect as they ran away or if they even got the victim as he tried to make his way into the starbucks. a lot of questions in pleasant hill. police looking for any information from anybody in the area or who might know anything about this shooting. >> you said this happened around 9:00 last night. were some of the stores open? is it fortunate that no one else was are judged in this? were there shoppers out and about? >> reporter: that's what makes things so scary. the mall was still open. there were people around. when you figure that as that one witness told me 7 rounds fired, if anybody else had been in the area, they could have
been collateral damage in this. >> it looks like they're open, the starbucks behind you. we're seeing people go in. >> reporter: yeah. the starbucks, frank, you can see customers inside there. you can see customers coming and going. business as usual. none of the rounds appeared to enter the starbucks. the closest one is, again, the bullet hole in the wall next to the starbucks. the hawaiian barbecue place, it looks like one window was blown out in the shooting. no word when they will open. presumably they would be opening at their regular time. >> christien kafton reporting in pleasant hill. thanks, christian. we have new information on a series of large scale brawl that's broke out at as many as 15 malls across the country yesterday. including a fight involving 500 people in aurora, colorado. they had to evacuate the mall last night for the public's safety. five jewel niles were arrested and two people were injured. investigators are trying to
figure out if there is a connection between to that brawl in colorado to other fights across the country. another fight broke out outside of a mall in cleveland. preliminary reports indicate this fight was loosely organized on social media. investigators are now trying to see if there's an online connection among the shopping mall fights in states including colorado, new york, texas, tennessee. one witness saw a girl get trampled in the ohio mall. a shopping trip to target on christmas eve turned deadly. there are a number of questions remaining. henry lee has the very latest. >> reporter: it was christmas eve and shopping was in full swing at the target on whip l road in hayward. but a fight broke out 8:00 on saturday night and a hayward man was stabbed inside the store. he died at a hospital. two suspects ran away but were arrested around the corner. both are men in their 20s from hayward. the names of the victim and the

even having a passenger in your car is a distracts. we have to face the truth and realize that phones are not going anywhere. would we rather people just drive and hang up, absolutely. is that a reality? probably not. >> will there be a grace period? will you ramp up and give tickets immediately? or will you give it a week or two. >> right now it is illegal to talk on your phone while you're driving. what this addresses is picking up your phone to use it as a map, things like that. there might be some kind of a grace period. not officially. as of january 1st, if you have your phone in your hand, it is illegal. >> let's talk about the ignition interlock devices. this is part of a pilot program already in effect in alameda county. you already have been enforcing it and watching the program. >> yeah. this isn't anything new for us. we're in alameda county. we handle this all the time. it will prolong the test program in the four counties right now and push it statewide in a couple of years. so long story short, don't get
a dui. don't drive under the influence and you won't have to worry about the new law. >> you're here joining us just before new year's eve. let's talk about the fact that if i see someone that i suspect is drunk on the road, should i stay behind them or get ahead of them. >> stay away from them. if it is so bad that you're noticing the driving behavior, hang back and call 911. you are allowed to call 911. it can be in your hand to call 911 or emergency services. let us know the make, model and the license plate. we know duis are a problem. >> back to the phone. quick question. you have it mounted. a lot of uber people do that. can you use your fingers to do that. >> if it is mounted in the window or mounted properly on the dash, you can push a button or swipe. that's it. >> okay. >> we as want as little interaction as possible with
your phone. >> i'm going to best buy today. >> pick me up a spare. can you tell us about the new rules affecting school buses. >> basically there is no button in the back of the bus that the driver will have to activate or deactivate to prove that they checked the bus to make sure that there are no children remaining in the bus. not a whole lot that a lot of people will see. it is another safety factor. >> i get a thorough check. the bus is empty and heading back. >> yes. we always learn so much when you join us. happy holidays and a safe new year. >> thank you. you as well. a marge menorah stolen from a san francisco crime. we will explain how the crime is bringing the community together. and raiders quarterback derek carr repairing for surgery. what some say about the team's chances in the playoffs.

>> i like that. >> i like that too. >> that's how i treat my closet with a new pair of shoes. >> we were talking about drug testing and drunk driving testing. one person tweeted maybe lawmakers should undergo the drug tests before they take office. those are some of the suggestions that we have out there. >> the chp officer said that they were allowed to talk on the phone but it is discouraged. so there is your answer to dewayne. thank you for tweeting. we appreciate you using the hashtag #ktvuthe9. rosemary orozco is keeping track of the cold and some possible rain. >> yeah. so slightly warmer days coming our way. the overnight lows will remain chilly. we get into the weekend and things turn a little bit. it doesn't look like a lot of rain. in fact the models have scaled back just some over the last few hours. giving you a live look across the oakland estuary, towards
san francisco where we have cleared out this morning. plenty of cloud cover to start the day. at this point, mostly blue skies. you can see on storm tracker 2 that the clouds are pouring in over northern california and coming our way. this is what we will see the next few days. the ridge of high pressure strengthening. as we move into the afternoon, temperatures will be in the mid to upper 50s. and then changes do eventually come our way. tuesday is a dry day. wednesday is a dry day. thursday is a dry day. we're now into friday. you can see the system coming in from southern california. it will give us more cloud cover and pull our temperatures back a little bit. it doesn't look like we will see a lot of moisture out of this. maybe the sierra picking up snow. on saturday, a second system looks like it wants to drop in. at this point it doesn't look like it will bring us any rain. now we're already into new year's day with mainly dry weather. so a bit of unsettled weather coming. i don't think you should cancel
plans. you won't have much rain if any to deal with. temperatures right now 34 in santa rosa. 39 palo alto. 38 for the inner east bay of concord. 38 in livermore. still chilly but not as bad as where we started. mid to upper 50s in the forecast for today. 58 for novato. 55 in san francisco. we have 59 in san jose. 62 in santa cruz. the extended forecast, temperatures slightly warmer tomorrow. holding steady as we move through thursday. and then as we get into friday and saturday with additional cloud cover, temperatures expected to cool off just some. overnight lows, moderate just a little bit as well. still very, very cold. near freezing especially for the inland communities. all in all, not a lot of change coming our way but cooler and we will call for unsettled weather for the weekend. >> thank you, rosemary. >> yep. new at 9:00, what could be a new design for a fire station for san francisco fire boats. the city is looking at the idea
